    I would like to have a welcome message on the home page above my blog posts. How do I do that? Thanks!

    There are a few options!

    1. If you want it on every page and post, you can add it as a header message (Appearance > Theme Options). I'm not sure how this is styled. This requires that you use the blaskan theme forever, because other themes may not support this field.
    2. If you want more flexibility on where it's shown and such, you can use a plugin such as http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-sticky/. (I'm assuming since you can use a custom theme you can also install plugins.) If wp-sticky isn't quite what you need, there are lots of other "sticky" plugins: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tags/sticky
    3. If you're comfy with goofing around with a child theme template, you can set a post parameter called "sticky" and then create a new index file template which queries for this. Probably not worth the effort, since there are plenty o' plugins already, but this guarantees that it will work to your liking, forever! http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/query_posts

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Hope that helps!
